Al Jazira Royal Hotel

Reviewed February 21, 2013

While
a) it's cheap at just over $100 for a twin even when everything else was booked and
b) has good staff and manager.

It has a ridiculous, shameful and intrusive owner policy of couples having to show marriage certificate.

Read the small print very carefully
"Couples wishing to share a room must provide proof of marriage."
Be aware that they are serious about this - apparently only one of two hotels in Abu Dhabi that are. This is an owners whim, and (according to staff) an average of five couples per day are caught out by this.

Aside from that, the hotel was okay for the price, centrally located, friendly staff and a very kind and understanding manager who is sympathetic to us heathens, though unable to effect a u-turn in the owners' desire to force his own moral stance on his paying guests.

Booked through booking.com for 1 night, check in very slow, first impression very bad, lousy and dirty area. Staff not helpful at all. Later they found out that we are not married, so we couldn't stay in the hotel but we paid already, nothing mentioned on the homepage, no cash refund or anything. Careless absolutely ridiculous. For the same price please stay somewhere else, not worth a single penny !!!

Old dated hotel that needs refurbishing. Saw a roach in the bathroom. My friend upstairs saw SEVERAL in her room. Had to pay AED100 for one week of internet. Restaurant was fairly priced.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else.

Stayed in this hotel for 1 night. The hotel was clean and prices reasonably if you book via booking.com. Not the closet to the airport. Breakast is only served after 7 AM,so if you have to leave very early you'll miss as I did.
